I agree. What are these guys on?
Three points for first, two for second and one for third. The tally makes champion brewer.
Best of show is the beer with the highest score
Always has been
We appreciate that you are appreciative of our opinions. Clearly we can see that which you can not.Thank you everone for your opinion - particularly those from outside NSW are greatly appreciated.
You can rant and rave all you like, but the simple fact is that each competition has its own set of rules and these rules are published in advance as part of the entry pack. If you don't like the rules then you have the option of discussing your concerns with the organising committee before entries close, or not entering at all.
It is totally unfair for all the entrants to 'change the rules after the comp' as this disadvantages those who read the rules and entered with them in mind. If it now was announced that all the entries would be counted towards an additional award of Champion Brewer people would be justifiably upset if they didn't enter as many categories as they could so that they would be in the running for this additional award.
Once again can I remind people that he best way to contact anyone from the club is to use the website - not AHB. And please remember that there are no fully trained operators waiting to take your call - there are only volunteers who need a day or two to catch up on the emails and discuss the issue before replying.
Over and out !
AWARDS:The following awards will be given:First placing, and ribbons to Second and Third placing in each class.Up to twoHighly Commended places may be awarded at the discretion of thejudges.Champion Beer of show, and Runner-upThe brewers of the Champion beers will be sponsored to enter a beer of theirchoice (could be in a different category or style) in theAmerican HomebrewersAssociation's National Homebrew Competition.
Fact, no Champion Brewer category was listed in the NSW ABC rules.
Fact, a Champion Brewer Category was awarded.
Fact, it was not the entrants who issued that award.
Fact, it was not the entrants who changed the NSW ABC rules.
Fact, AABC rules are that state rules should follow the AABC rules.
Is this not so?
Clearly never was an award for Champion brewer, though it does appear there should be 2 tickets for Champion Beer and runner-up.
Might I suggest a few people read the actual wording of the entry before bitching about non awarding of an award that was never on offer.
There WAS no award for Champion Brewer. Unlucky Mikk, probably would've cleaned up in most comps, but not this one.
Pasted from the H.U.B website (just saw it now, it was posted today)-
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The club committee have been discussing the awarding of the Champion Brewer since you raised your query.
Without a clear Champion Brewer Award specified the decision was made to award the Champion Brewer to the entrant who won the Best Of Show, Sam Haldane.
The ANHC organiser have been informed and they will contact Sam.
Congratulations on your results - looks like your beers did extremely well in the competition.
So, a final determination, finally...
It may be easy for a State to simply adopt this, but is not a requirement.
So what is your point?
I thought that was clear that D10 is specifically AABC.
C9 is not a minor point.
You are, of course, again perfectly correct, C9 is not a minor point (not that I said it was), C9 clearly states "where possible" and "relevant". As you point out D10 is specifically AABC....C9. Rules for State Qualifiers. State/Territory Qualifying Championships shall, where
possible, follow the same (relevant) rules as the AABC.
Not from your previous post. You plucked two paragraphs and co-joined to support your opinion.

So..whats the problem?
